Juan Miranda is the last to arrive at the project of Antonio Cordón and Manuel Pellegrini at Betis. The player returns on loan to Heliópolis after leaving Barcelona six years ago. In his presentation he made his intentions clear: “I am very happy to return to what is my home and my family. I left as a child and come back as a man. The first option was always Betis. It is a day that I will always remember, I had been dreaming about this since I left“.
Asked about his style of play, he had no doubts: “I am an offensive player, but I know that I am a defender and the first thing I have to do is defend. Past? My dream was always to get to the first team, although I went to Barcelona very young. Luckily I'm here. “
Experience: “I have worked with many stars and at Barcelona they have treated me very well. At first it gives you something until you enter the locker room to get water. In the last stage in Germany it cost me a bit more. It was a matter of adaptation, I have learned a lot there personally. Play now? I would be ready to play this weekend“.
Pellegrini figure: “I spoke with him this morning and he was close. The dressing room has welcomed me very well and I am very grateful“.

We have tried to maintain the high potential of the squad, we believe that many players did not perform at the level expected of them. We have not wanted to sell off the assets we have in the club. We wanted to preserve the value of the template and prop up defense and goal. We also won in full with the arrival of Sanabria, we are satisfied with the team we have. Our main signing has been the coaching staff headed by Pellegrini“.” 90% of the fans have taken a big step with the renovation.
